There seems to be lots of confusion as to how much specs change unstrung vs strung. Here are some guidelines which exclude poly and any other string which adds more. Sorry I dont know the metric equivalents off the top.
-Stringing adds approx 1/2 oz to the static weight
-Stringing adds approx 20 swingweight points
-Stringing makes the frame approx .4 inches less headlight/more headheavy
-Stringing makes the frame approx 1-2 points less stiff/more flexible

Physics quiz -- why is the racquet more flexible after it's been strung?

Thanks Mark. So about 5 SW points for the Poly. That's significant. Good to know. Hope all is well in Markville and Happy New Year...we've not 'talked' in some while. Ed

i prefer unstrung, because the strung specs are depending the type of string
